two weeks. it's entitled "at the brink: will obama push us over the edge?" and i think like maybe a lot of americans there's a lot of really crucial things that are happening right now. i think, unfortunately, in some areas the president's policies have permanently damaged the country. there are other areas where i think we're close, that things can still be fixed, and disaster can be averted in some areas. but i'm going to try to go through a few of the topics that i have, everything from health care to the economy generally to gun control. you know, just on gun control there's been a lot of things that have been happening over just even the past few weeks. i was in colorado a couple weeks ago, and it's the first time i've kind of heard of a white house getting involved in the passage of state legislation where the big news when i was there was, apparently, vice president joe biden had just been calling up members of the state legislature there kind of lobbying them, saying that if they voted the right way, the president would help campaign for them this next year, and if they vo

unemployed americans 99 weeks of cash compensation. nearly two years. the question is what does president obama think of the congressional progressive caucus? my opinion, he likes it i don't think the president believes that crew is fanatical because they want what he wants. by the way, the far left kooks do want to cut one thing, defense spending. they want to bring that back down to 2006 level. somewhere in iran is cheering. there comes a point when americans are going to have to decide what country, what kind of country they want. even taking half of what affluent americans earn, feds couldn't possibly afford what the far left wants to provide. so we would eventually become greece or cyprus if the u.s. dollar collapses and people stop lending us money. some conservatives believe that's exactly what the far left wants. a collapse of the entire capitalistic system. some on the right believe that president obama is actively working toward that. certainly senator bernie sanders of vermont wants socialism in this country and so do most of his compatriots on the crazy caucus. yet, americans

that relationship that you alluded to. what is the relationship between obama and netanyahu like? >> it's very, very tense obviously. three years ago to the week is when vice president joe biden went to jerusalem, a trip that i covered for the "washington post," and to do the very same thing, make nice to israelis, to reassure them that they have u.s. support at a time when they feel isolated regionally and internationally. that trip blew up when there was an israeli announcement during the trip of new settlement construction in east jerusalem. this led to a harsh rebuke by joe biden and kicked off three years of tension between the president and the prime minister. they have not been able to get on the same page to the county where president obama has really stopped talking about it. i'm not clear how much he's even going to talk about the palestinian issue on this trip. maybe indirectly but they really haven't had much of a meeting of the minds when it comes to the major core issues such as settlements, etc. then the real retrenchment from what president obama had hoped to do originally e. not to

things deteriorating especially with that news conference last week, between benjamin netanyahu and president obama and sounded like netanyahu says, look, i've been given the okay to go ahead alone if i need to and what's in the middle east. >> you've handled it skillfully and see the administration use the relationship with morsi to help stop the hamas rocket attacks late last year and egypt has not turned fully towards iran yet and we need to keep egypt as part of an anti-iran coalition in the arab world and as you say, to maintain the peace agreement with israel. and that points to the need for risk diplomacy behind the scenes and i think the united states is doing it and a skillful ambassador in patterson and secretary of state in john kerry. and i think they're going to have them cease and desist from the aggressive tactics they're they think and turn this situation into one where the government begins to listen to the people on the street and gives them an opportunity to say what they have to say and try to reduce this level of violence. i don't think it would make any sen
